Bushisms in action: "We will Stay the Course"

“Let my people go. Let my people be free. It is time for the Iraqi people to run their affairs”. Those were the words of Ahmad Chalabi:

U.S. authorities. U.S. troops and Iraqi police recently raided the home and party offices of Governing Council member Ahmad Chalabi on Thursday, taking computers and private files from the man once considered Washington’s top Iraq ally.

An Iraqi judge issued a series of search and arrest warrants relating to fraud, kidnapping and “associated matters,” said coalition (CPA) spokesman Dan Senor. Up to 15 people were named in the warrants, but Chalabi himself wasn’t believed to have been on the list.

Chalabi, a former exile who returned to Iraq after Saddam Hussein’s overthrow and was viewed by some in Washington as a possible leader, said he believed the raid had been carried out because of his deepening standoff with U.S. authorities.

Suffice to say, American influence is going to be felt in Iraq for a long, long time.

Blokeism for the day: If even half the money spent on bombs was put into alternative fuel research, would the middle east be as relevant?
